The Smell of Heaven

(What would heaven smell like?)

I kept it near my nose,
and took in a deep breath.
The breath filled my lungs,
the aroma, my consciousness.

I never wished to exhale,
lest I waste the smell.
I wished not to live,
lest I had to ever breathe again.
I wished not to breathe,
'coz I knew this would end.

The aroma would fade,
the feeling would pass.
Only I would remain,
forever suspended in the memory.
Of a sweet smell that was,
but was not meant to last.

I wished my heart would stop,
I couldn't ask for more.
I'd smelt heaven while I lived,
I feared hell no more.
